Intern Profile

Ms. Leslie Stratton
2014
Hometown: 
Bedford, NH

“What you see through the media is very different than what actually happens down here,” says Leslie of her internship in Washington D.C. in the office of New Hampshire’s U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte. During her internship Leslie has had a wide variety of experiences, from giving tours to visitors to spending a day actually shadowing the senator herself.  Interns also have the opportunity to write, research, attend committee hearings, and answer correspondence.  “Nothing compares to working on the Hill,” concluded Leslie at the end of her summer in Washington.
